Overrated: Kylington
Underrated: Rittich

Hard to find underrated prospects on a fan message as not surprisingly we rate our prospects highly.

Over-rated: Kylington and to a lesser extent Andersson. I like both but some have slotted them in already as top 4 dmen. Remains to be seen.

Under-rated: Gonna go with Dube. He gets some attention, but I think he could be a bigger factor in this team long-term than realized.

Many defensemen won't "inspire optimism" until they are already logging 22+ minutes in tight playoff series. His game is understated and lacks the flash of a 'nasty' physical defenseman or a high scoring dynamo, but everything is there, mentally and physically. His future remains to be seen, but IMO the success of a guy like Muzzin, Ekholm, Dumoulin, or Gardiner isn't out of reach.

I forgot about Dube. Good pick.

Overrated: Morgan Klimchuk. People on here still act like this guy could pan out. He is made of porcelain and will never survive the physicality of the NHL.

Underrated: Tyler Parsons. I don't think many know how actually good this kid is. He has all the tools and skill to be another Carey Price.

Darkhorse: Shinkaruk. He is is either going to become a top 6 sniper or nothing.

Underrated: Stepan Falkovsky. Not bad for a 7th round pick. He's never really mentioned.
Overrated: Hunter Shinkaruk. The Flames really really lost that trade. No question about it. Next to know progression in the past few years.

Overrated: Kylington - I know he's highly regarded around here, but still has a long way to go.
Underrated: Wotherspoon - Quietly was a top defenseman in the AHL this year. Has kind of been wirtten off, probably premature.

Underrated: Dube- surprisingly durable with intriguing set of skills.

Overrated: Kylington- I think a lot of people are going to be disappointed with this pick, there's a reason he was passed over by everyone else. It's not his skill set, it's his incredibly low hockey IQ.

The fact he played exactly where Ferlund would have done better in the playoffs still irks me.

UNDERRATED
Chad Johnson, David Rittich and Tyler Parsons.

These 3 should be given specific instructions to compete for the starters job and this search for a number 1 should stop. I think we have the guy already and don't know it.

We had a guy who was a backup who turned into a number 1 because someone had faith in his ability and he was and always be the best goalie to ever play for the flames.....you know what's his face......

Dark Horses
Kylington, Hickey, Hathaway, Lomberg, Tuulola, Mangiapane, Rittich,

I hope these guys all push really hard and prove they are ready.

Within our system are answers if we just try.

Going out and acquiring vets year after year that don't pan out is getting really old. That and reclamation projects.
Chad Johnson isn't a prospect...

Over rated: Kylington. he just continues to make dumb errors and stupid risks even knowing for a while now that's his weakness. He doesn't seem to take criticism well because it seems to make him want to play even riskier. He's a slow learner. Don't think he will ever figure it out.


Underrated: Hathaway. He should be on the 4th line.

Might have to change my under rated pick to Kylington, jeez.

The guy is a top 4 d in a league he shouldn't even be playing in.

Ooh, AOM is my other 20+ game dark horse if we can get him signed. Kid plays a mature, simple, yet effective game.

Intrigued by Stepan Falkovsky. Still a long-term project (far down in the system) that could pay dividends. I fully expect him to be in Stockton next season.

Rasmus Andersson looks like the real deal. Shed his "Fatmus Sandwichson" reputation and put in a solid season. I think a permanent spot on the Flames blue line is within reach.

I think Jankowski is not only penciled in, but on the roster with a permanent Sharpie.

I don't think there's any prospect who is over-hyped. Which might actually be a good thing. The system is better than it has been in years, so there's no need to over-compensate.

This would be a disaster.
